Christmas (w)rapping (Jacki Style)

Happy Choosday crafty peeps I hope you are all fine and dandy this week.
You know the drill now (haha) it’s Tuesday so that means another new challenge over at Digi Choosday, I have to say that hand on heart I have loved these last few challenges especially this one I really enjoyed making this (again something a little different for me)
As always for you guys the theme is anything goes but for us DC girls the theme is Christmas Wrapping (Did I hear Christmas!!!!!!!!! )Aarrrgggghhhhh run for the hills it’s way too early. Oh I guess I will have to bite the bullet lol and start sooner or later hehehe
So Christmas wrapping I could have made an envelope or something I guess, but to be honest I did struggle a little with this one. Then I had an idea, I have seen loads of these made over the years and think I have only ever made one before (Nikky and the girls are really getting my creative juices going lol) So a cross over card made into a wrap perfect

I had a verse that was called Christmas wish list and when I saw the image from Twiggy and Toots I knew I had to put the two together then it was onto the wrap and here it is
It’s made to finish as an 8x8”(ish) card  the  papers and image are  mainly from
I printed off the papers and verse for the inside matted onto white card a little smaller than the main size I also used one of the pre coloured images in the bottom corner. I die cut 2 strips using spellbinder edgabilty does to make the handles at the top and added some red and green ribbon(as that is the colour theme) inking the the edges of the handles in red DI.
The outer cross wrap is made from 2 A4 pieces of card attached to an 8x8” cut to size then cut the tops off diagonally  I matted and layered the papers making sure all sides were covered (back included) then went over with some tinsel snowflake embossing powder and then splattered diluted acrylic paint over the papers. 

After gluing everything in place I added the topper to the front and a sentiment to finish off and there you have my take on Christmas wrapping (although I do have the song Christmas wrapping *rapping* going on a loop in my head hahaha)
Hope you like it and I will see you again very soon
